The purpose of the Endocrine System:

To produce chemical messengers called hormones and target (direct) these hormones to specific glands/organs at certain times to either stimulate or suppress (slow down) a particular function of that gland or organ.

 

bullet For example, the pituitary can stimulate the ovaries, testicles, uterus, or prostate to produce the necessary hormones to regulate sexual activity, as well as regulating a women's menstrual cycle. If these hormones are not produced in the proper amounts and released at the proper intervals then loss of sex drive, premature menopause, osteoporosis, increased weight gain, loss of secondary sexual characteristics (female facial hair, male gynecomastia) and loss of energy can occur.


The endocrine system is composed of the following glands:

bullet
Hypothalamus

The hypothalamus is a part of the brain that lies just above the pituitary gland. The hypothalamus is the link or the communication system between the nervous system and hormone system (endocrine system). The purpose of the hypothalamus is to receive information from the body and release hormones (chemical messengers) to stimulate the pituitary thereby controlling hormone production in the pituitary gland.


Since the hypothalamus controls the pituitary, it also

  or colon problems bullet Weak immune system leading
bullet Menstrual conditions such as bullet to many illnesses
  irregular or painful periods, ovarian    
  cysts, fibrocystic breasts, uterine    
  fibroids, and inability to become pregnant or to maintain pregnancy    

 


If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from hypothalamic malfunction.

Pituitary Gland

The Pituitary gland is called the "master gland" because of its influence on many glands and organs in the body. The pituitary, the existence of which has been known for 2,000 years, is regulated by the hypothalamus. It attaches to the hypothalamus by a stalk called the pituitary stalk. The pituitary weighs less than 1 gram, but do not let its size fool you, because it has a dramatic effect over all body chemistry. 


The pituitary controls the:
bullet

Adrenal glands

bullet Thyroid gland
bullet Parathyroid glands
bullet Ovaries/uterus and testicles/prostate
bullet Pancreas
bullet Thymus

In turn, these glands have a dramatic control over organ
and system function in the body.



The purpose of the pituitary is to:

bullet

Control growth and repair

bullet Stimulate metabolism
bullet Regulate sex hormone production in men and women
bullet Regulate energy production
bullet Regulate water balance in the body


Common health problems of pituitary malfunction may include:

bullet A slow metabolism leading bullet Diabetes
  to weight problems bullet Hypoglycemia
bullet A sluggish or overactive thyroid bullet Weak immune system leading
bullet Fatigue or lack of energy   to many illnesses
bullet Fluid retention from kidney, bladder, bullet Inadequacy and feeling out of control
  or colon problems bullet Feelings often dominating over logic,
bullet Menstrual conditions such as,   and changeable moody temperament  
  irregular or painful periods, ovarian bullet Vivid dreaming
  cysts, fibrocystic breasts, uterine bullet Suppressed emotions
  fibroids, and inability to become bullet Feeling empty and depleted
  pregnant or to maintain pregnancy. bullet Poor memory
bullet Erectile dysfunction bullet Dwelling on sexual matters
bullet Lack of sex drive bullet Greed with disregard for others
bullet Depression    


If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems,
then you may be suffering from pituitary malfunction.

Pineal Gland

The Pineal gland is in the cranium and weighs between 0 .1-0.2 grams. The pineal is known as the biological clock of the body, thereby regulating many of the events mentioned below. The pineal gland is occasionally the site of significant human disease.

 

The pineal plays an important role in regulating sexual, and reproductive function, as well as the onset of puberty and menopause. It also influences sex organs and their development, and can also retard sexual development.

 

The pineal gland secretes melatonin, which produces sleepiness, a feeling of well-being, elation, and increased REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Lack of melatonin causes sleeplessness and depression. Melatonin is also used to treat immune conditions and hypoglycemia.

 

The pineal improves brain maturity, and is used extensively by psychics and top grade athletes. The pineal gland works with vision, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. Therefore, the pineal can cause problems with hearing, vision, touch or problems with hot or cold, especially if there is a severe emotional or physical shock. The pineal also deals with humidity in the external environment, and water balance within the body.

 


Common health problems of pineal malfunction may include:

bullet Depression bullet Problems with sight
bullet Schizophrenia bullet Problems with hearing
bullet Difficulty sleeping bullet Inability to concentrate and focus
bullet Eyes sensitive to light bullet Mental confusion
bullet Premature menopause bullet Difficulty maintaining body temperature
bullet Late onset of puberty   during weather shifts from hot to cold
bullet Difficulty becoming pregnant bullet Hypoglycemia
bullet Immune deficiencies bullet Carbohydrate cravings
bullet Frequency of illnesses with low bullet Weight gain
  resistance and inability to recuperate bullet Prone to many disease processes
  quickly   of the body
bullet Fluid retention    

 

If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from pineal malfunction.

Thyroid

Diseases of the thyroid are the most common of all the endocrine glands, notably due to iodine deficiencies in North America. The thyroid, one of the larger endocrine glands, is located in front of your breathing airway (trachea), and below your Adam's apple. The thyroid produces two hormones:

bullet

Thyroxin, which controls your metabolism (how much energy you burn)

bullet

Calcitonin, which controls calcium and phosphorus levels in the bone and the

  blood by taking calcium and phosphorus out of the blood, and depositing
  them into the bones.






 

 

Thyroid disorders result from either too little (hypothyroid) or too much

(hyperthyroid) thyroxin or calcitonin. 

 

 

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism include: 

bullet

Decreased energy

bullet Hair loss
bullet Weight gain bullet Dislike of  working under pressure
bullet Slow heart rate bullet Dislike of  being watched
bullet Dry skin bullet Mental depression
bullet Constipation bullet Irritability
bullet Low body temperature bullet Mood swings
  (feeling cold all the time) bullet Low self-esteem
bullet In children, slowed growth; and in bullet Crying easily
  infants, affects development and    
  causes mental retardation     

 

 

Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism include:

bullet Anxiety bullet Like working under pressure
bullet Fast heart rate bullet Mentally active
bullet Diarrhea bullet Irritability
bullet Weight loss bullet Mood swings
bullet Bulging eyes bullet High self-esteem
bullet Qualities of aggressive bullet Difficulty sleeping, relaxing or resting
  overachievement    

 


If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from thyroid malfunction.

Pancreas

The pancreas is a large gland that is midline behind your stomach. The pancreas is composed of a tail and a head. The tail of the pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin. The purpose of insulin is to take sugar out of the blood, and either deposit it into muscles for energy, or store it in fat cells or in the liver. The pancreas also secretes another hormone called glucagon. The purpose of glucagon is to release sugar that is stored in the liver as glycogen, and put it back into the blood. Between insulin and glucagon, blood sugar levels are maintained.

Diabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are high, due to the pancreas not producing enough insulin. This is called Type 1 Diabetes. There exists a second type of diabetes known as Type 2, which occurs when the body is resistant to the insulin in the blood. In Type 1 Diabetes, a patient may need to take insulin, but this is not always the case. In Type 2 Diabetes, sugar levels can be controlled through exercise, diet, and supplementation.


 
Symptoms of high blood sugar include:

bullet Fatigue bullet Sweating
bullet Increased urination bullet Neurological problems (diabetic neuropathy)
bullet Heart problems bullet Premature aging
bullet Weight gain bullet Heart conditions and heart attacks
bullet Lack of stamina bullet Circulatory problems (amputation of limbs)
bullet Soft and spongy muscles bullet Problems with vision or loss of sight


There is also a condition where the pancreas produces too much insulin and this condition is called Hyperinsulinism (HI). This condition may be inherited and is called Congenital Hyperinsulinism. HI may be caused by an insulin-secreting tumor of the pancreas, or insulinoma. 



Symptoms of low blood sugar include:

bullet Anxiety bullet Hunger
bullet Mood swings bullet Light-headedness/fainting
bullet Sweating bullet Fatigue
bullet Increased heart rate bullet Soft or spongy muscles
bullet Weakness    

 

The head of the pancreas produces enzymes that help in the digestion of sugar (amylase)(carbohydrates), fats (lipase), and proteins (protease). Without these enzymes digestion will not properly take place, causing many digestive complaints.

 

 

 

 

 

Symptoms of pancreatic head conditions include:

bullet Burning in the back bullet Food allergies
bullet Headaches bullet Eyes that appear to be sunken into
bullet Indigestion such as bloating,   the eye socket
  cramping, fowl smelling stools, bullet Metallic taste in the mouth 
  constipation, and diarrhea    

 

 

If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from pancreatic malfunction.

Adrenal Glands

The adrenal or suprarenal glands are paired with each gland located on the upper portion of each kidney. Each gland is actually two endocrine glands divided into an outer layer, which is called the cortex, and an inner layer, called the medulla. The adrenal cortex is necessary and essential to life, but the medulla is not and can be removed with no life-threatening effects.

 

The adrenal cortex produces hormones called glucocorticoids that help in the control of blood sugar and increase the burning of protein, sugar and fat. These hormones also respond to fever, major illness/disease, and injury. Another group of hormones from the adrenal cortex are called mineralcorticoids. These hormones control the volume of blood (thus regulating blood pressure) by affecting the kidneys to maintain sodium potassium and water levels. A third group of hormones called androgens (sex hormones) affect secondary sex characteristics in both men and women.

 

The adrenal medulla produces a hormone known as epinephrine (adrenaline), which increases the heart rate, dilates (opens) airways to improve oxygen intake, and increases blood flow to muscles. This usually occurs when a person is excited or stressed. A second hormone, known as Norepinephrine, is also produced by the adrenal medulla. This hormone is related more to maintaining normal activities as opposed to emergency reactions.



Problems caused by the adrenal cortex include:  

bullet Fever bullet Loss of secondary sexual characteristics
bullet Frequent urination bullet Osteoporosis
bullet Emotional or mood swings bullet Kidney conditions
bullet Mid back pain bullet Fluid retention
bullet Inflammatory reactions bullet Kidney stones
bullet High/Low blood pressure bullet Weight gain
bullet Rapid pulse bullet Difficulty handling sugar, protein or fats 
bullet Loss of sex drive    

 


Problems caused by the adrenal medulla include:

 


bullet Fatigue bullet High/Low blood pressure
bullet Emotional or mood swings bullet Rapid pulse
bullet Mid back pain     

 


If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from adrenal cortex malfunction.

 

 

 

 

bullet Sex glands (ovary/uterus, testicles/prostate)
 
bullet
Ovaries

The female reproductive organs are called ovaries. The ovaries produce two hormones known as estrogen and progesterone. These hormones are also responsible for developing and maintaining female secondary sexual characteristics or traits, as well as maintaining pregnancy. Female secondary sexual characteristics include a high pitched voice, lack of facial and body hair, smooth skin, increased body fat, a decrease of muscle mass, increase in sexual drive, and enlargement of the breasts. Along with the pituitary hormones, they also control the menstrual cycle and the maturing of the female eggs for reproduction. 

 

The most common change in ovarian hormone production is during the beginning of menopause. Menopause can also occur when the ovaries are surgically removed or when put on certain medications. When this occurs, you have a decrease in estrogen levels, which causes hot flashes, thinning vaginal tissue, hair loss, decrease or lack of menstrual periods, mood changes, and bone loss (osteoporosis).

 


Problems caused by the ovaries include: 

bullet Low back pain bullet Low sex drive
bullet Headaches bullet Delayed puberty
bullet Abdominal pain bullet Decrease in any secondary sexual characteristics
bullet Sciatica   which would include a deepened voice,
bullet Mood swings   increase in body and facial hair, lack of
bullet Erratic body changes   sexual drive, and rough skin
bullet Lack of energy bullet Painful menstrual cycles
    bullet Erratic menstrual cycles

 

 

If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from ovarian malfunction.

Uterus

The uterus plays a vital role in oxygen/carbon dioxide/water balance in the body.
Most females with uterine problems complain of water retention, lack of energy, and excessive fatty deposition, especially in the hips, buttocks, and thighs. The proverbial cellulite is a typical uterine condition.

 

The uterus also plays a role in the implantation of the fertilized egg, which within nine months, becomes a fully formed fetus. So the purpose of the uterus is to act as a home for the first nine months of life.


Problems of the uterus include: 

bullet Difficult pregnancies bullet Lower back pain
bullet Excessive bleeding bullet Leg pain, especially the outside of the leg
bullet Difficulty with the fertilized bullet Sciatica
  egg implanting in the uterus bullet Mood swings (this is where
bullet Uterine fibroids   hysterectomies got their name because it
bullet Endometriosis   was thought that women became
bullet Lower abdominal pain and cramping   hysterical due to uterine malfunction) 

 

 

If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from uterine malfunction.

 

 

 

bullet
Testicles

The male reproductive organs are called testicles. A man's testicles produce a hormone known as testosterone. During puberty, testosterone levels increase, and cause the development of secondary sexual characteristics (physical changes) such as: penis and testicle growth, increase in muscle and bone mass, sex drive, increase in height, facial, and pubic hair, and deepening of the voice. Testosterone levels will maintain these characteristics throughout a man's adult life, and will also affect male pattern baldness.

 

Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in males, between 15 and 35 years of age. The usual course of treatment is surgical removal of one or both testicles. This causes a decrease or absence of testosterone, and will cause a decrease in all of the physical changes noted above. Testosterone levels are affected by the pituitary gland.

 

Problems caused by testicles malfunction include: 

bullet Low back pain bullet Low energy
bullet Headaches bullet Low sex drive
bullet Abdominal pain bullet Delayed puberty
bullet Impotency bullet Decrease in any secondary sexual
bullet Sciatica   characteristics, such as: decrease in muscle
bullet Mood swings   mass, lack of facial hair, high voice, and
bullet Erratic body changes   feminine characteristic.

 

 

If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from testicular malfunction.

 

 

 

bullet
Prostate

The Prostate plays a vital role in oxygen/carbon dioxide/water balance
in the male body.

 

Problems caused by the prostate include: 

bullet Low back pain bullet Difficulty with urination or frequency
bullet Sciatica bullet Decrease in seamen output or volume
bullet Mood swings    

 

 

If you suffer and consider 4 of the above as potential health problems, then you may be suffering from prostate malfunction.

How a Blood Analysis test can help you even more

Remember, it's always important when beginning a new health regime to get a blood analysis first to see if you have a health condition that has a biochemical imbalance as the root cause. This test will identify as well as determine what type of diet you should be eating and which organs or glands may be malfunctioning. This information will help determine which supplements you require. This is about as specific and focused as you can get using nutritional support
